Report: Isco rejects Juventus move amid continued Everton interest
Everton have been handed a potential boost in their pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder, Isco, with the Spaniard rejecting a move to Juventus.
According to Calciomercato, Isco has made his intentions clear and wants nothing to do with a move to the Italian giants, potentially paving the way for Everton to make their move.
The Toffees have been credited with an interest in Isco, with the Mirror claiming last month that Carlo Ancelotti had an interest in landing the Madrid playmaker on a lenghy loan deal initially.
Isco, however, is thought to prefer a permanent move. But his rejection of a move to the Italian champions could well open the door for Everton to make their move.
The Spaniard’s wages may be the only stumbling block in any move. The Express believes Isco earns around £120k-a-week, and, given the size of the Toffees squad, someone may have to make way for Isco.
Interesting call from Isco and one for Everton to watch – TBR View
It’s an odd call for Isco to reject a move to such a giant of the game but it may be a suggestion that he does actually fancy the move to England after all.
He’d be a big signing for Everton and follow the trend of some of their recent captures, which have included the likes of James Rodriguez.
Isco is a class act and has won it all with Madrid. The question for the Toffees is whether they can afford him, and then accomodate both he and Rodriguez in the same system.
